Mohonk Light

By Jill Draper Makes Stuff


If you like yarns that are perfectly solid from skein to skein, run away! This yarn is not for you. But if you are fond of the shifting color that comes when a beloved dyer is working with small batches, settle in. We have something very special to show you. Mohonk Light is fingering weight lambswool, nonsuperwash, with wonderful bounce.

Isabell Kraemer’s Bottom Line Pullover, featured in MDK Field Guide No. 10: Downtown, is a perfect canvas onto which we paint these amazing Jill Draper colors. See the Ravelry page here for yarn requirements and sizes.

We will do our best to find skeins for you that are friends when you order a quantity of Mohonk Light. Because we have limited stock, please order in sufficient quantity to finish your project. We will not be able to match skeins from previous orders.
Please note: pattern not included. The Bottom Line Pullover pattern appears in MDK Field Guide No. 10: Downtown, available in both digital and print editions. Be sure to add a copy to your cart at checkout!

Jill Draper is one of the true geniuses in the world of hand dyeing. Her fans are not a cult, exactly, but when you see the crowds at her open studio at Rhinebeck, the excitement is pretty great.

We crave the subtlety and depth of color in Jill Draper’s yarns. There are no dye lots—she works in small batches, so there is variation even from batch to batch.

Some knitters work with yarn like this by knitting a row from one skein, a row from another. We’ve never done this, mostly because we actually like the stripes and pooling and mystery of what will happen when you knit a yarn that varies from light to dark, saturation to desaturation.
